Default Daily Journal

Im thinking about making some type of spreadsheet to record daily info once I bring Avery home.
Here is what I was thinking:
Food intake, water intake, treats, weight, bedding changed, wheel cleaned, full bath, food bath, nails clipped, meds given (if needed), activity, other notes.
These would be either sections to record the info or checkboxes if something was done.
Is there anything else that would be good to have in it? Does anyone else do this or have an example I could see?

I have 3 columns for "normal" hedgehogs. Weight, distance ran, notes. I use the notes sections for changes from routine. Bath, nails, didn't eat well, no poop in cage, changed food mix, change amount given, etc. For days where there is nothing abnormal, ate normal amount, etc I just record the weight and distance ran.

For hedgehogs that are on long term medication, I create a chart that includes a medication section, and check boxes for each dose given.

It is a fairly minimalistic chart, but it records everything I need to know and is easily adapted to various situations. I change bedding out nightly, full cage clean weekly, and wheels get done daily, so those items I don't bother with.

You put an odometer on the wheel.
